LIVINGSTON, NJ — A 75-year-old Livingston woman was transported to the hospital with minor injuries on Friday after she lost control of her vehicle and struck a fence, a building and two other vehicles before finally coming to a stop, police said.
At approximately 2 p.m. Friday, Livingston police responded to a call at 25 West Northfield Road, where they discovered upon arrival that Louise Wydra had attempted to turn into a parking space behind 9 West Northfield before losing control of her vehicle.
While turning into the parking spot, the vehicle surged forward onto a curb and into the rear parking lot of 19 West Northfield Road. According to police, the vehicle then continued into the lot, striking two vehicles in the process, and continued through an aluminum shed. Wydra then drove through the chain-linked fence separating 19 and 25 Northfield, crossed the exit driveway of 25 Northfield and came to a stop as she struck the building.
Wydra was transported to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries sustained during the incident.
On Tuesday afternoon, police were called to the scene of a hit-and-run accident where one vehicle left the scene of a motor vehicle accident at 68 Passiac Ave, according to the Breaking News Network (BNN), which monitors emergency radio activity.
The BNN reports, which could not be confirmed, said there were injuries caused by the accident and that the vehicle that left the scene was a dark-colored SUV that should have rear-end damage. The service also reported that the vehicle fled toward Parsonage Hill Rd.
BNN later reported a gas leak at 21 Elmwood Drive, where discovered a leak at residential structure under construction prior to the valve.
A BNN report involving a shoplifting incident at the Livingston Mall and the chase that ensued on Monday has also yet to be confirmed.
